Since opening its first Australian store in Melbourne almost two years ago, US big box retailer Costco is getting ready to open its Auburn and Canberra store this week.
Costco has announced it will open a third store in the country's capital, Canberra, which is expected to bring greater supermarket competition to the ACT.
Following "a very successful Christmas season so far" Costco is on the hunt for a third location on the east coast.
Retailbiz speaks to Costco’s Australian managing director Patrick Noone about the latest remarks the company has made about local competitors, Woolworths and Coles.
Since opening its first store in Australia in July 2009 at Melbourne Docklands, Costco is now a month into construction for its first Sydney store.
